Rome: Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri hailed his side's winning mentality as they sealed a seventh straight Serie A title after a goalless draw against ten-man Roma at the Stadio Olimpico.

"It's not an issue of decisions on the future; it's about planning what the future of Juventus will be because once we've finished celebrating, we have to sit around a table with clear heads. Four years like this will not be easy to repeat".

The Turin giants had needed just a point to officially seal their 34th scudetto and become the first team to complete the league and cup double for four consecutive seasons. "Credit goes to the lads for keeping their cool, taking things one step at a time towards our final objective".

Allegri had led them to two finals in three seasons but this time their challenge ended in the quarter-finals to Real Madrid.

"I'm in charge of a fantastic squad made up of some great players, backed by a club which has always supported us, even in moments of difficulty". "I'm going to regret it all my life", said heartbroken goalkeeping star Gianluigi Buffon.

"They say we are old and ugly but we are always the ones who win".

De Bruyne doubts Manchester City points record will ever be beaten
The pair are likely to come up against each other in the summer as Sterling's England face De Bruyne's Belgium at the World Cup. Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson on Monday extended his contract to stay with the English football champions until 2025.

According to the same story, the Italian is prepared to quit Juventus at the end of the season to sign for Arsenal, but only if he feels that he will be able to turn the club in genuine contenders over the next few seasons.

"It goes without saying Juve are more powerful in every way", said Sarri, who lamented that Napoli played many games after the champions.

Maurizio Sarri believes Napoli were psychologically affected by repeatedly playing after rivals Juventus in the Serie A title race.

"They spoke too soon and they paid for it".

"The team suffered a psychological blow due to the timing and the way that result [Juventus winning at Inter] came about. We played after Juve nearly every time andm seeing as Juve pretty much always win, that badly damaged us".
